night i want a man who had the good sense to marry michelle obama. [ applause ] i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states. and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. [ cheering and applause ] now folks, in tampa a few days ago we heard a lot of talk about how the president, the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise, how we want everybody to be dependent on the government. how bad we are for the economy, this republican narrative, alternative universe says that everyone of us in this room who amounts to anything we're all completely self centered. one of the greatest chairman the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every vote tore believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but strauss admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities for poor folks to work their way in to it with relentless focus on the future with business and government actually working together to promote growth. and br
have a funny question for you after listening to nancy pelosi speak now and thinking back on michelle obama last night talking about being the mom and she nancy pelosi introduced herself as a mother and a grandmother. and we saw her daughter and granddaughter in the crowd. is it possibly a strong, efficient, accomplished political woman anymore without saying you are a mom first? >> i am not a mom. i guess it is -- absolutely. but i have to laugh about all the times where nancy pelosi has described her leadership in terms of motherhood and in terms of being a woman. and i think it does make her a powerful leader. and i think my life experiences that i bring to the job everyday also make me a strong leader. >> and can i follow-up. michelle obama could have told an alternative story that she went to princeton, she went to harvard law and became a successful lawyer. she went to the chicago hospital system making $300,000 a year. top 1%. it was a successful career story. and she probably had doubts about leaving that behind. why is that not possible to tell that story? >> well, it is poss
michelle obama. [applause] i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i probably nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party -- proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. in tampa a few days ago we heard a lot of talk about how the president and the democrats do not believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everyone to bea dependet now on the government, how bad we are on the economy. this alternative universe says that everyone of us in this room who amounts to anything, we are all completely self made. one of the greatest german the democratic party ever had, bob strauss and -- which is rated one of the greatest democrat, bob strauss says every american wants you to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself, but he admitted it ain't so. we democrats think the country works better with real opportunities. with business and government working together to promote growth and proudly share prosperity. we believe we are all in this together is a far better philosophy than we are
, this was not really at all front and center, but there was a lot of focus on the successes of michelle obama's address and bill clinton making the case, the mess of the economy that president barack obama inherited and there's president obama tonight looking over the horizon and telling us where we're going to go. this is a passing event for discussions on programs like yours, but doesn't indicate where the party is. stuart: it's out there, sir. really is. congressman peter welsh, democrat, we always appreciate when you appear with us, thank you. >> thank you. stuart: another big movie higher this morning, all right, nicole. >> sears was a great performer as of late. it was boosted out of the the s&p 500, guess who is buying up shares? eddie lambert the last 24 hours in a filing, 2.4 million shares he purchased. do you know how much that's worth? 126 million dollars. so when we heard zuckerberg was not selling facebook, the stock popped. when you see lampert buying shares, the stock popped. when you see the manager buying shares, i feel confidence in the company, you should, too. stuart: i don't want
to marry michelle obama. >> reporter: clinton had two basic arguments. one, that while the republicans are intransigent, the president, like him, is all about cooperation, having named republicans and former rivals to his cabinet. >> heck. he even appointed hillary. >> reporter: point two, that the president, like him, supports economic principles that will work. while the republicans do not. the former president had several other points to make. >> the republican argument against the president's re-election was actually pretty simple. we left him a total mess. he hasn't cleaned it up fast enough. so, fire him and put us back in. >> reporter: former president clinton and the arena gave an answer to the question that obama campaign officials seemed to stumble on earlier this week. >> but are we better off than we were when he took office? >> reporter: afterwards, president obama electrified the audience by surprising them by joining president clinton on stage. offering a bro hug and a personal presidential applause for a former rival, to which the former president said simply, thanks. o
michelle obama, the chair is the most influential woman that the white house is listen listening to and "the new york times" article calls her the other power. good to see you valerie. >> well, it is so good to see you on the third and the final day of of the convention. >> at love oenthusiasm and it has been hectic. tell us about the prep ratiaratf the president's speech? >> well, he has an opportunity to speak honestly and directly to the american people about what he has been accomplishing over the last four years and the road map for the future and it will crystallize the sharp comparison of his plans in comparison to governor romney's. as president clinton said to eloquent eloquently last night, governor romney wants to double-down on trickle-down and we know it does not work. the president believes in growing a strong and robust middle-class, and providing the ladders of opportunity for those not yet in the middle-class and want to work hard and have that american dream, and so he will contrast those two very differedi different visions and lay out how to get us there. >> w
6. thank you. [applause] >> please welcome the >> that is barack " obama and michelle obama's story. my father was a construction worker. he built our highways. my mother arrived in this country as a newlywed with no money, and no family. together, they realized the dream of sending their four children to college. the american dream. in any language, that is what this election is about. we need president obama for four more years to keep that dream alive. when president obama was elected, the american dream was on life-support. the middle class was being hauled out. we cannot afford to go back to the failed policies of the past. maybe governor romney has forgotten how he got into the mess that president obama faced. we have not. two wars, tax breaks for the wealthiest, the wall street bailout, katrina. nearly 9 million americans lost their jobs because of the great recession. our teachers, firefighters, and police officers were laid off, and our small businesses could not get the bail out banks to offer them any credit. how many construction workers like my father do you think the d
, michelle obama the first night, president clinton last night and president obama tonight. i think we've got a trifecta. >> yeah. there's been some powerful speeches. it's been said that clinton in 20 seconds made the best sell for the president, better than the white house has been able to make in four years, what do you make of that? >> there's only one bill clinton. did a great job last night. i think he really summed it up is that under democrats america gets jobs. under the republicans we don't do so well, and i think our president tonight will continue the effort to make sure that americans know the facts, and heard a lot of fibs last week at the republican convention and it's time to straighten out the record. >> still though, some read it as bit of a liability, that the white house or the president himself can't make that case. in the end, politics are a singles game, not a doubles game. how much pressure son him to sell himself tonight? >> well, i'm a white sox fan, and so is president obama, and we're in first place. we're going to stay in first place, and i think president obama c
profiles i have seen over michele obama. this is a slow rising tide. david gregory didn't get the job just because he was a white male. he is someone who had been a white house correspondent for nbc. he had the skills that were necessary to be a good broadcaster and a good interviewer. the time will come when those jobs will be again available, and there will be a much wider range of people who will be eligible for them. one of them could very well be an african-american. it may be an asian american. i'm not sure. it may be a hispanic american. we are seeing more presents of people with different ethnic backgrounds than just white, anglo and protestant. bryant gumbel succeeded me on "the today show" as the african-american host of "the today show", for example. >> host: for scrotal organ, please go ahead with your question or comment. >> caller: i come from a different journalist background than you, but i feel equally crucial to americans and how they should know what is going on in their world. i was a reporter and an editor at a small, medium-sized weeklies in dailies over the nation fo
follow bill clinton i think is barack obama. >> absolutely. now michelle obama. >> bill: yeah, that's true. >> but you're right. i think to lead into him tonight with the vice president is a great idea because nobody talks about the economy in human terms like joe biden does. he humanizes economic stuff better than anyone and i think even better than bill clinton and he'll be warm and he'll be enthusiastic and probably not very brief. >> bill: he may depart from the script a little bit too. joe biden still has the best summary of what the message of this campaign is all about when he says here, i've got it on a bumper sticker for you. osama bin laden is dead and general motors is alive. >> absolutely. i heard joe at an event near my district a couple of years ago and he said he had this one thing, he had the crowd wrapped around his finger and he said you know, the hardest walk any father has to make is to climb that short flight of steps and to tell his son or daughter that they're not going to be able to play in
